Trump White House Has Smaller Staff, Spends Less on Salaries - than Obama White House.

Posted: Jul 12th, 2018 - 4:41 am

....A new report on the White House Office Personnel revealed that Trump has a significantly smaller staff than his predecessor did at this time, according to an analysis by Open the Books, a government watchdog organization that focuses on spending....

In addition to maintaining a smaller staff size, Trump’s White House has also cut payroll by over $5 million when compared to Obama’s 2015 staff. The 2018 payroll currently sits at $35.2 million, in contrast to the 2015 payroll which Open the Books reported exceeded $40.9 million.

Open the Books also noted that by maintaining a smaller staff and by refusing to take a salary, Trump has already saved $11 million in taxpayer dollars, and “four-year savings could easily top $22 million.”

Each quarter, Trump has donated his salary, including to the Department of Education, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Among the various areas in the West Wing with reduced staff, the office of First Lady Melania Trump is notable. Trump has a staff under half the size of then-First Lady Michelle Obama’s in 2009. Trump currently has 10 staffers, while Obama had 24.
